I'm a progressive and I'm going to be running a campaign to represent Washington's 10th Congressional District. I've been working since I was 15.  I'm 25 years old and I own and operate a trucking business with my wife.  I'm an activist and I have worked on campaign for Education funding, getting money out of politics, a green New Deal, an increased minimum wage, and other issues. my representative doesn't agree with almost any major policies the majority of Americans agree with and so I think he should be replaced. I've pledged to take this all the way. I'll be personally knocking on 25,000 doors before the primary, and along with volunteers I expect we will need to knock on 100,000 doors before the primary, and 400,000 before the general election.

I know everyone has different priorities in what they look for in a candidate, so here's a short list of my policies:

-At least a $20 minimum wage by 2028. continuous increase tied to inflation.
-Green New Deal with workers as a PRIORITY, not an afterthought.
   ~Nationalize energy production in the US, manufacture & export green energy. All wealth generated is used to fill retiremen fund, and used to fund paid family and Medical leave for ALL.  Similar to Oil Pension fund in Norway
-Federal Jobs Guarantee. All jobs at least 5% above minimum wage.
-Free College, Trade School, & Job Certification courses for all Americans of ANY age, prioritizing the implementation for in-demand fields like Medical and Green Energy to meet the demands of the Green New Deal and Medicare for All allowing more people to finally get the healthcare they need.
-100% Federal income tax break for ALL households under $80k/year for 2 years.
-Tax the rich at least as high as FDR
-Massive annually increasing tax penalty for companies that don't employ only Americans, similar to what they did to us with the healthcare mandate.
-DOUBLE military salary, bring all troops home from the Middle East and put them under the direction of the United States Army Corps of Engineers to rebuild OUR crumbling infrastructure.
-Nationalize weapons manufacturing, bombs should be for actual defense, and they should not be a for-profit industry that lobbies and bribes politicians.
-National Improved Medicare for All.  Abolish for-profit health insurance.
-Reduce mass shootings with thorough Federal background checks and FREE MENTAL HEALTHCARE FOR ALL.
-Ban private prisons. Require all prisons to provide college & trade school, ban private job discrimination for nonviolent criminals, still guarantee Federal job to all ex-cons.
-Police reforms, bias training, de-escalation training, demilitarization, non-lethal force emphasis etc
-No subsidies for large businesses, only tax incentives for SMALL businesses that pay their workers well
-Fix K-12 so kids can start college or trade school at 16.
-Federally funded program to end homelessness, including for the 40k+ military veterans.
-U.S. gov can only buy from Union & Worker-owned American businesses
-Ban corporate and foreign lobbyists.
-Publicly Financed Elections and ranked choice voting, automatic voter registration
-Firmly establish women's rights to control their own bodies.
-Pathway to citizenship, no money wasted on the wall, decriminalize drugs and put pressure on countries south of our border to also decriminalize drugs to destroy the financial power of the drug cartels.

    “I've met and conversed with Denny Heck and learned firsthand why we need people like Joshua Collins in congress. He lied to us about polices. He was out of touch, served his donors, and not his constituents. I'm proud my $27 is going towards a candidate fighting for the 99%.”

    “I endorse Joshua Collins because he is willing to standup to the corrupt system we have, including corporate democrats. I truly believe he is in the best interest of us, the people. He is involved and I am grateful to have come across him and his campaign. He answers our messages and has helped educate while asking questions of how WE feel and it's helped make me think more deeply on policy issues that I care about. He isn't afraid to state his beliefs and knowing he will not waiver or be become bought politician gives me hope for the future. No corporate PAC money, just a real guy doing this the right way!”

First Goal Reached!

Thanks to 19 total donors, we reached our goal.  The most common donation is $27.  A lot of us wouldn't be involved in politics now if it weren't for Bernie Sanders running in 2016.  I will be as consistent with my moral principles as he's been for decades.  I will NEVER give in to corruption. I will NEVER cower to the powerful.  And I will ALWAYS fight for what is just and moral.  Thank you.  And if you know any Progressives thinking about running for office, encourage them to run!
